Statistics from the Canada Safety Council show that dur- ing Safe Driving Week, high- way fatalities in Canada are lower than during any other seven-day period at this haz- ardous time of year. Tlie average death toll in traffic for Safe Driving Week since it was inaugurated hi 1958 has been 61. In 1970, 63 were Wiled dur- ing the week. The weekly av- erage for the rest of Decem- ber was 96. The safety council says win- ter weather combines with Christmas cheer to make tragedy. Bright decorations distract drivers, and shoppers and cel- ebrating pedestrians may pay little attention to traffic rules. The Safety council offers these tips for safe winter driv- ing: defensively, by rec- ognizing hazards, understand- ing the defence and acting in time; sure your head- lights and tafflights are clean and your windshield wipers and are in working order; down, avoid sudden maneuvers and vse snow tires.

Chamber president John U.S. didn't kill hydrofoil test OTTAWA (CP) Defence Minister Donald Macdonald de- nied here that the suspension of Canada's 550 million hydro- foil experiment was a price the United States demanded in a current renegotiation of the de- fence production sharing agree- ment between the two countries. But he told Michael Forrestall East) that a U.S. decision to build its own hydrofoil may have contrib- uted to the decision to mothball the Canadian project to develop a hydrofoil fighting vessel. But he told Michael Forrestall East) that a U.S. decision to build its own hydrofoil may have contrib- uted to the demise of the Cana- dian project to develop a hydro- foil fighting vessel. Mr. Forrestall asked whether there was any connection be- tween recent abandonment of the project and a rider in the 1963 Canada-IT.S. agreement that required a long-term bal- ance in the value of trade under the defence program. Canada has sold about million more to the U.S. than it has bought in U.S. military hardware. Negotiations on the pact are under way. Mr. Macdonald said the nego- tiations have had "nothing to do" with the cancellation of the hydrofoil project, which cost ?50 million over a decade. When Mr. Forrestall asked again about the rider, Mr. Mac- donald said the question should be asked of Trade Minister Jean-Luc Pepin, who is in Eu- rope. Former Conservative prime minister John Diefenbaker (Prince Albert) asked that a June 7, 1963, rider be tabled in the Commons. It had often been mentioned but had never been made public. Mr. Macdonald said he would bring the suggestion to cabinet colleagues. Tarns, MC for the after-dinner program, presented the Past President's certificate to Le- roy D. Mills. Deputy Mayor Kenneth McDonald represent- ed the town in the absence of Mayor Arthur H. Mr. Brown spoke on respon- sibility as the key to freedom, scoring apathy, indifference, complacency and lack of co- operation evident everywhere in the field of civic con- scienciousness and the preser- vation of the good life we en- joy. He lauded the new commun- ity centre as a "credit to any community or city in Canada, and said that the sugar festi- val as a special feature is "an explosive promotion" for the community. The banquet, served by sup- porters of the Taber Bantam Elks to finance their Califor- nia trip at year-end, was fol- lowed by a dance. Events preceding the cul- minating event included a free pancake breakfast Friday morning at the ice arena foyer. and sugar beet loading and topping competitions. Named beet loading cham- pions and receiving were a Barnwell quintet Bruce and Ronald Johnson, Gordon and Reed Jensen, and Les Wil- liams.
